Aqueduct near Blue Creek photograph
Description: Photograph showing an aqueduct, which can be one of two kinds of structures: a channel for transporting water from one location to another (e.g. a pipe), or a passage for ships to cross over valleys by means of a water channel. The caption beneath the photograph reads: "Aqueduct spanning Blue Creek, Paulding Co., O." This photograph is part of a series taken by the Board of the Ohio Department of Public Works to document the disrepair of the infrastructure of the Ohio and Erie Canal and Miami-Erie Canal systems in 1916, showing the physical condition of each structure. The Ohio Department of Public Works is one of the oldest departments of state government in continuous existence. Among its other duties, this department was charged with maintenance and administration of the Ohio & Erie and Miami-Erie Canals. View on Ohio Memory.
